Guns and Roses (Metal and Flowers)!!

Well, Hi and Happy Saturday Morning!!  I hope you are all having a great weekend.  For this week's challenge, I am the hostess over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and as you can see by the subject title, I thought we'd have a little fun with the 'Guns and Roses' name.  Silly me, some time back I suggested to my dear daughter, Kraftin' Kimmie that it would be a good title for a challenge using metal and flowers.  Of course her response was "and would you like to be the hostess for that week?"  Well, I do have to say that I haven't hosted a challenge in eons, so I agreed. 

For my card, I used the adorable Lucas and his wheelbarrow of flowers from the set 'Let's Dish the Dirt'.  I had great fun colouring this image, but I love colouring all of Cheryl's images.  Lulu, Libby, Lexi and Lucas are all so flippin' cute, you can't help but have fun with them.  Anyway, I used some lovely 'Fly A Kite' papers from My Mind's Eye.  I love the clouds, especially since I'm too scared to try doing my own clouds like most of the other gals on the team do so beautifully.  I framed the image using the Deckle Nesties, then framed that with some Poppy Parade card stock and then a narrow border using some of the patterned papers.  I also put a Poppy Parade strip across the middle between the two patterns I used for the background.  I put a strip of aqua grosgrain ribbon across the bottom after sliding a cute metal buckle onto it.  There are flowers on it, flowers on my image and I punched out some paper flowers and put on the corner of the image, so I guess I have my flowers covered. Now you get to do your own Guns and Roses creation and be sure to link it up to the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge Blog for a chance to win the cute stamp I used on my card.
